    Epidemiology & Biostatistics

About

The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics prepares you to investigate the causes and risk factors of diseases and injuries in populations. Epidemiologists conduct both experimental and observational studies within the community, including studying the characteristics of individuals and their physical and social environments. Their findings provide public health practitioners and policy makers with guidance to promote health and prevent and control diseases and injuries.

You can learn from and participate with faculty members, most of whom are employees of the New York State Department of Health with University at Albany appointments. These faculty are actively practicing epidemiology and addressing the public health problems and priorities of New York.

Featured Research Projects

 

Childhood Adversity and Depression

Children who face adversity are at a significantly greater risk for severe depression, research out of the School of Public Health finds. Published in Depression and Anxiety, the official journal of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, assistant professors Melissa Tracy, Allison Appleton and Tomoko Udo explain that more than half of adults report one or more adverse childhood events, such as parental mental health problems or financial hardship. The results of their study showed that the children in groups with higher levels of adversity had a higher risk of depression — and severity of depression — regardless of when the adversity took place.

 

Predicting and Preventing Violence

An interdisciplinary UAlbany team has received almost a half million dollars from the National Institutes of Health for a comprehensive study on violence, and the project is among the small number nationwide to receive a perfect score from the Institute. Led by principal investigator Melissa Tracy, an associate professor of epidemiology, the team will study the processes that contribute to violence within social networks and test strategies that could potentially prevent it.

 

UPSIDE Study

The School of Public Health is conducting the UPSIDE study, which is funded by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and aims to better understand Hepatitis C (HCV) and related issues among persons who inject drugs (PWID) in Upstate New York. Because HCV is most commonly transmitted by injection drug, a behavior which has been increasing as part of the drug epidemic in the U.S. and New York, the spread of HCV has been increasing. Although PWID are the priority group to understand ongoing spread of HCV, few research studies have been conducted on this population in upstate New York.

Principal investigators Tomoko Udo and Eli Rosenberg are leading the UPSIDE study, in partnership with syringe exchange programs run by Catholic Charities Care Coordination Services in the Capital Region, the Alliance for Positive Health in Plattsburgh, and the Southern Tier AIDS Program in Norwich.
